‘Israel is fighting to protect Europe and the US’: Top donor explains why a strong Israel is crucial for the West. ‘Israel is the eastern border of Western Civilization’, Arutz Sheva, August 16, 2016.
“I come to Israel every two months and every time I learn something new,” said Abramowitz. “But the one fact that never changes is that Israel is the eastern border of Western Civilization.

As radical Islamic terrorism spreads across Europe and to the United States, Abramowitz noted the importance of learning how to confront terror from the example set by Israel.
“It’s great to be in Israel and learn. I learn every time I’m in Israel about the future, because what happens in Israel will happen in Europe and in America in 2 years, 6 years, 10 years later. So Israel is the future, and it’s important to understand the future, and you can understand the future simply by getting on an airplane and coming to Israel.”
